Enhance your knowledge of Greenlandic culture and history on a walk through Ilulissat. The town is of prime historical significance to Greenland. Founded as a trading post by the Danes in 1741, Ilulissat today is Greenland´s third-largest city with more than 4,500 inhabitants.
During the walk, a guide will tell you about the history of the city, Greenlandic culture and modern life at 185 miles north of the Arctic Circle. We visit fishermen at the harbor and hunters at the trading post, “Brædtet.” You will also see the house where famous Greenlandic/Danish polar explorer and anthropologist, Knud Rasmussen, was born.
